The All Progressives Congress (APC) has released a fresh presidential campaign council list.

 

The list dated October 19 was signed by Iyiola Omisore, national secretary of the party, and released on Wednesday.


President Muhammadu Buhari will unveil the party’s manifesto and inaugurate the campaign council on Friday.

The initial list released by James Faleke, a House of Representatives member and secretary of the council, had elicited pushback within the ranks of the party.

Governors elected on the platform of the ruling party were reportedly displeased over the exclusion of their nominees from the campaign council list which had 422 members at the time.

Some of the governors reportedly threatened to pull out of the campaigns if their demands were not granted.

Falake subsequently moved to pacify them, saying that the list was incomplete and their nominees would be added to the update.

The new list released by the party has over 600 names, including all the members of the national working committee (NWC), the federal executive council (FEC), the APC national assembly caucus and chairmen of the party in the states.

The president was named chairman of the council while Abdullahi Adamu, national chairman of the APC, was tapped for deputy chairman.

Bola Tinubu, the standard bearer of the party, is deputy chairman II, while Kashim Shettima, his running mate, is vice-chairman.

Faleke still retained his position as secretary of the council.
